    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Doctor X – in Blu-ray

    As most are aware, very few two-color Technicolor films survive, and those that do are usually not based upon original elements. "Doctor X," which has been restored from a unique studio nitrate print, is no exception. Preserved in the analogue world a number of years ago, it has now received a...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Isle of the Dead – in Blu-ray

    After his time with David Selznick, Val Lewton, one of the finest creators of atmospheric horror, began a career at RKO, where he created a series of delicate little horror films that has never been equalled. Back in 2005, a wonderful set of 9 films was released by Warner on DVD, and over the...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Crossfire – in Blu-ray

    Warner Archive is releasing Crossfire, a 1947 RKO production, directed by Edward Dmytryk, in their normal boring quality, which means virtually perfect. Lush black and white, with a patina of film grain give the impression that one is viewing a nitrate 35mm print. The only digital oddity that...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ A Tale of Two Cities – in Blu-ray

    A Tale of Two Cities, based upon Dicken's work, would have made a perfect production for David O. Selznick, to be distributed by M-G-M. Two of the class acts in the motion picture trade. The nice thing, and it's obvious through every frame, is that it is a Selznick production, and his last...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Kentucky Kernels -- in Blu-ray

    Never been a Wheeler and Woolsey fan. I've always felt more attuned to "the boys," Chaplin and Keaton. Or if teams, Laurel & Hardy, or the Marx Bros. Never did I ever believe that a Wheeler and Woolsey film would be restored. Never did I ever expect a Wheeler and Woolsey film to arrive on...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Flying Leathernecks -- in Blu-ray

    I could probably end these few words right here by telling you that Warner Archive's Flying Leathernecks, a 1951 RKO production, is perfect in every respect. But I won't do that. If for no other reason than I find that boring. So let's talk about oddities. The film opens with an RKO logo. In...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Girl Crazy – in Blu-ray

    Warner Archive is doing it again. Readers continue to complain that they don't go back and release enough old, black & white films. And this is the result. They've gone back to 1943 for a Tommy Dorsey musical, directed by Norman Taurog, with a musical number (I Got Rhythm) directed by Busby...

    Robert Z. Leonard's 1940 take on Jane Austen's 1813 novel, is a magnificent M-G-M production, for which they apparently spared no expense. Photographed by the great Karl Freund, and with a cast of M-G-M's top players - Greer Garson, Laurence Olivier, Edna May Oliver, Maureen O'Sullivan, Ann...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Strike Up the Band – in Blu-ray

    Strike Up the Band, directed by Busby Berkeley, is a wonderfully entertaining 1940 Paul Whiteman musical, from WB's M-G-M catalog. As a Warner Archive release, it's also a perfect Blu-ray representation of the film. It's also a musical oddly stuck in a very strange time period. It went into...
